Beach Weather took to instagram to reveal to fans what brought them to this decision.

"The time we have on earth is short and we all three agreed that the best thing for all three of us is to take time away from this project and focus on all three of our own projects. It was extremely hard to make this decision because of the amazing people that have supported our band but we feel like this is the most real and authentic decision to make at this time."

 

 

Over the past two years we were given the amazing opportunity to create new music under the name Beach Weather. We had the extreme pleasure of meeting so many people that helped make this band possible. From our very first tour with The Maine in September of 2015, to several tours with our friends in Against The Current, our amazing run with PVRIS. Along the way we had our ups and downs trying to discover what this band was. Creatively, this was one of the most challenging projects we have worked on. Sonically, the band's sound was much different than anything any of us has done before. With that said, in May of 2017, we went off into the mountains of Vermont and began working on new music with just the three of us. Over the course of writing, we began to open up the conversation of what music we all wanted to make. We are three individuals with three different ideas. The reality of this was what made the first two EP's possible alongside our good friends Sean and Alex Silverman. Going into this process for the third time, we all began to open up the dialogue of what we really wanted to make at this moment in our lives. The time we have on this earth is short and we all three agreed that the best thing for all three of us is to take time away from this project and focus on all three of our own projects. It was extremely hard to make this decision because of the amazing people that have supported our band but we feel like this is the most real and authentic decision to make at this time. We do not want to use the words that this band is entirely done. We are still friends and want to leave the project open for the chance to be able to pick it back up down the road or be able to release music for fun. Moving forward, we will all be taking some time off and then we will begin working on our new projects. We will make sure to keep you all posted on what is to come! We wanted to leave you with a little gift, below is a link to listen to "The Basement Sessions" which features 4 acoustic songs. We can't thank you, our friends, and family's for giving us the opportunity to express ourselves creatively. It's a period in our lives that we will never forget.
